Saturday, 17th, was spend rounding up the corners, getting ready for the big Farmer’s Union Convention which met in Oklahoma City the 19th.
Sunday, the 18th, in company with Brothers, Rich, Goad, and Walker of Bennington, we went to the City where most a week was spent in attendance upon the longest attended, most enthusiastic and most important State Convention the Farmer’s Union has ever had.
Monday, 27th found us back on the job, giving the boys a chance to join our ranks in an effort to make our state just a little happier and better place to live in.
The county convention will be held in Bokchito Saturday January 31st at 10am. The principal address will be delivered by our Judge Porter Newman.
